Conair – Dash 8-400AT Airtanker No 545

Fast, efficient and flexible. Featuring Pratt & Whitney PW 150A turboprop engines, the Dash 8-400AT airtanker is the most modern airtanker in the world today. Featuring an external 10,000 litre tank with the ability to drop retardant, water, or foam/gel, the airtanker offers a proprietary Retardant Delivery System (RDS), capable of multiple, constant-flow coverage levels from a single, controlled-flow release over wildfires. Operable from most 5,000′ runways in remote or urban locations, the Dash 8-400AT performs both initial attack and support roles, offering tactical flexibility and consistent speed drops in steep, rugged terrain.
